We don't have that on the Sedona's here in the States, but I have a couple of ideas for you to try.

There is a DRL resistor located on the front of the passenger side strut mount. Unplug it.

It has three wires going to it, two white and one orange.

If that doesn't work, there is a relay at the bottom of your center console that you can unplug, but it may not be easy to get to. You may be able to remove the drawer/cupholder/ashtray thing in front of it. (I don't remember what it is in front of the console) Four wires go into it, two black, a green and a blue.

If neither of these work, let me know.

That's odd that the lights are just as bright as your regular low beams. What is the difference between the two when you turn your headlights on?


The Sedona's in the states don't have the DRL at all.

Near the DRL relay, there is a DRL module with a 12 pin connector coming out of it. Only 9 of the wires are being used. Cut the yellow wire with the black stripe, then ground the end that goes into the module. This wire goes to the parking brake switch so that when you step on your parking brake the lights turn off. You have to cut it, otherwise your parking brake light will come on.

OR

This ones a little easier to do. Under your hood there is a blue connector. It's located under the fuse block, but there's a cover that clips on to the fused portion of the block. Remove one of the battery cables, then the three nuts holding the fuse block down, then the two nuts that hold the thick wires on the end of the fuse block. After all of that, there are two clips that hold the top part of the fuse box to the bottom cover. In that connector, there is an orange wire on the end that needs to be disconnected or cut. This wire goes to straight to the headlights from the DRL unit.
